in davos. take a listen. >> the notion that people including complaining about the deficit and object to a fairly small tax is mind boggling. the banks were the recipients of so much explicit and implicit help that for them to complain when we're trying to reduce the deficit in a small way with a small tax on them really is outrageous. >> frank does believe ultimately that the tax will become law and go into effect. what i'm hearing when it comes to regulation, though, and whatever may or may not transpire as a result of what obama proposed last week in a final bill if one does come out of congress, what i'm hearing is that regardless, the fed is really taking a stringent tone when it comes to capital charges against various parts of banks businesses, particularly ones that are considered to be extraordinarily risky. and so even if we don't get regulatory reform we are certainly going to end up with a market place in which you're going to have to have a lot more capital against certain businesses that may in fact have the ultimate effect of making those businesses a lot less profitabl

. >> pleasure. >> one of the major issues that's come up in davos is haiti. can i ask you what you think is the best route to reconstruction here? >> i think what's happening in davos is clearly people understand that we're still in the emergency phase of what's happening in haiti. and there's still a desperate need to get food to people, get water, the shortage of tents. all of these things people aren't very aware of. but there is a sense here that as we start to build back, we need to build back better. we've got to make sure that as we start the reconstruction of haiti and that we avoid the mistakes of the past that we give these people a better future. i also think there's quite a lot of work here being done on learning the lessons of how we respond to emergencies like this, not least because in a world of climate change and growing populations, there will tragically be other events like this where we need to make sure the international response is as good as it can be. >> so do you think, then, perhaps haiti may be sort of a new paradigm, a new way to rethink how to approach global

liesman coming up as well. >> meanwhile, maria bartiromo is in davos, switzerland, for the world economic forum. she'll be talking to some of the most influential economic minds in the world including blackstone chairman and ceo, steve schwarzman but first let's take a look at where the major indices are trading and it has been another poor day today. apart from yesterday, of course typically in this last hour, we have seen selling come in right in this final 60 minutes of trade. for the most the dow jones industrial average is down. at the nasdaq we've there a bad day for technology today on qualcomm, on motorola, disappointment on apple and i just want to talk about the levels on the s&p. importantly today we broke obvious support at 1085. we based that -- that was the base that we had, established over six weeks at the end of last year. we gap lower to 1078 and now coming back up to that critical level. so just bear in mind that that's essentially how things stand at the moment. let's get to our team covering all of these markets that cnbc will kick off with bob pisani as ever on the f

that are in davos figuring out the future of the world. sounds important. no one paying tanks except, of course, richard quest. richard, i have to ask you, except for you, has davos lost its relevance? >> reporter: oh, chris, for goodness sake. no, no, and no again. look, you just jump on the old populist bandwagon that says davos is a waste of a time. but the reality is that it does give a forum that allows decisionmakers, government, ceos, bankers, to discuss the great issues that they have to put forward. now, i will give you one example. let's just take today. today i have spoken to president lee of south korea. i have met darling the chancellor of the uk. the greek prime minister. i still got to see her image tri the queen. i'm just having two, three-minute conversation was them. but they are all meeting each other. they are mingling amongst the snowflakes. no, it is not a waste of time. >> i wish when they were all over the past ten years getting together and skiing and having their cappuccinos they would have figured this was going to happen in the first place. all right. richard quest,

of heads of state in government that are in davos figuring out future of the world. sounds important, so why is no one paying attention except our good friend richard quest in the swiss alps there for us. richard, except for you, has davos lost its relevance? >> oh, chris, for goodness sake. no, and no again. look, yes, that's right. you jump on the old populous bandwagon that says davos is a waste of time up a mountain. the reality is that it does give a forum that allows decision makers, government, ceos, bankers to discuss the great issues they've got to put forward. i'll give you one example. let's just take today. today i have spoken to president li of south korea, the president of iceland, the greek prime minister. i just had a chat with mark dekent of coca-cola and got to see her majesty between rainier. they are all meeting amongst each other and mingling among the snow flakes. no, it's not a waste of time. >> i just wish when they were skiing they would figure out what's going to happen in the first place. richard quest in the mountains. >> come on, come on, get your other clich

resort for a major conference. it's called the world economic forum and gets under way in davos, switzerland, tomorrow. this year one of the themes is rebuilding trust in financial institutions. but ironically executives from two companies that took t.a.r.p. money are flying there in corporate jets. that's right. flying first class on commercial aircraft wasn't good enough even though it would have saved hundreds of thousands of dollars. joining us now is the senior editor with "reason" magazine who says there's nothing wrong with them using corporate jets. well, let's start with you, katherine. they could have flown commercial and you said there's nothing wrong with flying corporate jets. explain why. >> i get it that we all want to see a ceo of a bank standing there in his socks waiting for a grandmother to find liquids in her carry-on but the question is, is that going to help the american taxpayer get back the hundreds of billions of dollars that we gave to them? if we don't like the sight of corporate bankers climbing into private jets paid for with taxpayer money we could

in davos, switzerland. i just sat down with jean-claude trichet, he said a couple headlines, momentarily, he said that any laws or changes to the banks system must happened on a coordinated international level. he said authorities have under the end of 2012 to actually put something on the table that will be sustained and consistent. number two, when i asked him about asset bubbles, he said part of the reason we are seeing valuations rise is things had gotten so low, he would not name the asset bubbles, as you might imagine, and would not tell me what he was thinking about. on economic growth, he said we are in recovery, there are weak spots in europe, and he is expecting greece to get that deficit down to un3% of greece's gdp. as you know right now greece is showing a deficit of 13% of the country's gdp. it's promising to get that deficit down to the targets rate of below 3% by 2012. he says he is expecting that to happen and believes that in fact the country will be able to do that. let me bring in right now steve ellis, worldwide managing director of bain & company. good to have you o
and what's clear here from davos to washington to wall street, this debates going to continue. i want to quote tom friedman here, he said when our government is this deeply involved in propping up our economy, and the economy is this fragile, politics as usual will kill us. something to keep on eye on in this debate all the way from here to where you're sitting. kyra. >> all right, poppy harlow, appreciate it. and a post-speech bump for the president. here's our new cnn opinion research poll. we talked to 400 people who watched the speech and they're showing more confidence in the president's ideas. 71% now say his policies are moving the country in the right direction. only 53% thought that right before the speech. >>> well, beware, the wicked weather is looming, right, jacqui? >> yeah, it's starting to accumulate already in oklahoma city. the latest on the ice storm and its track and we've got flooding too. in fact, a high-water rescue just took place in odessa, texas. we'll tell you more about that coming up. >>> and a love song to haiti. yep, a heart-felt message from kirk frankli
's over now in europe? george soros. this is fantastic! he's many davos pitching for it now. soros is probably the only investor who is still on board with obama's bank plan. why? let's follow the circle of influence. the president, our buddy phil just serving you, soros, soros has the tide foundation. he heavily donates to this. it's great. one of the biggest projects in the tide foundation he gives tons of money to is the apollo alliance. the apollo alliance, remember him? creating green jobs. that's what he did. we got jeff jones here. he's -- well, he was part of the weather underground. i like the picture because in case you don't -- i mean, say something bad happens you can always check glasses for his fingerprints. this was taken, you know, when he was blowing things up with this guy in the '60s. okay. so wait a minute. hold it, there is something missing. it remember what it is. this is so weird! who is the chairman of the apollo alliance? this guy! he just happens to be the chairman of the financial crisis inquiry commission. that's getting to the bottom of the banking mes
that as soon as -- in 2008 in davos i said, we needed a global stimulus of 2% and the reason we asked for the stimulus is tleesz i said before because we basically they're only ones working on the rights thing today which is linkages between real and financial economy. so i agree with you, forecasts are very often not that right and when they are wrong, we say what i said, at the beginning of these remarks, saying, the recovery goes stronger and sooner than expected which means that we plan recovery not that strong, which means we were wrong, so, i say it in a nice way but it is true. on the other hand, i do believe that the exercise i was describing, previously, the framework in the g-20 will be very helpful for our forecasts. because the advantage of a system like the imf now as wall ready existing which is we make our forecasts country by country and try to make it consistent of one part of the world to the other one and there's a lot of alterations between the country and the imf, because at the end of the day exports from the china to the u.s. has to be equal to the imports from
that happens. the ceo of toyota, interesting, yesterday, he finally showed up on camera, in davos, switzerland. and said he was very sorry about all this. has toyota handled this well? >> i don't think people at toyota would say they've handled it well. it has turned into a bit of a public relations disaster. but keep in mind, they don't have any experience, if any experience, with the big, high-profile recalls. this has been the domain of the domestic automakers, who have the big volume cars. toyota is getting a taste of what it feels like to be at or near the number one spot. and they're learning as they go. >> and speaking of the domestic automakers, do you think they'll benefit from all this? gm and ford have offered incentives to toyota drivers. >> they certainly will. as you suggest, the deals will attract some people. and it will chip away at the big reason people buy toyotas. quality and reliability. those are being undermined by this. gm, ford and chrysler can probably make some headway. >> jayne o'donnell, thanks so much. >>> new government figures show the grose domestic product gre
